    Carte du réseau Pasteur Network
    Located in the heart of endemic areas, the Network has privileged access to a large number of pathogens that it monitors and studies on all five continents. This exceptional diversity makes the Pasteur Network a unique global actor in public health, science, innovation, and education, especially in the fight against infectious diseases.


    One of our missions will be to strengthen an enabling environment for the network to ensure that individuals, members and the network as a whole are able to achieve their goals.
